Everyday Joes will host the band, Willet, on Oct 10th.
Willet, based out of Westminster, MD, writes songs that portray their view on the current AIDS epidemic in Africa.
“In April of 2008, the band released a full-length “concept album” for Africa called, “VIRUS”, which included 10 songs, a documentary, photos from Africa and an E-book of “writings” explaining the lyrics. The songs were written over a span of two years in hotel rooms, tour buses, coffee shops, airports, tour vans, and on the dirty streets in Africa. The songs were written to challenge the listener, the church, and America to be proactive in fighting the war on poverty. Following the release of the album, the band left for an 8-month tour across the U.S. in support of the new album.”
Here is a video of Willet during their visit to Africa:
Willet will be joined by another Christian rock band, Rough Draft.
